I'm still working on my upcoming DC Adventures game but I'm already running into some minor snags and did a little test run Saturday. Good but far from perfect. Its also really weird to note that my group consists of avid comic book, movie, TV and animation geeks who, quite frankly, are not that familiar with DC comics.
I feel like I may run into a similar situation here that I encountered running Star Trek. My new group is less diverse than my old one and if one member is not overly familiar with a subject its a good bet that the lot of them aren't either (to varying degrees).
Its not that the old group was really any more familiar with my favorites necessarily but they adapted to new things more easily. Also, since they were pretty diverse and older, the chance that at least one or two of them would be knowledgeable on a given subject, genre or universe was vastly better.
The bottom line is I really want to run this DC Adventures campaign and I'll just have to find people who want to be in it. I hope that the group I have in mind is really up for it but if not I'll find other people. I can't stop coming up with ideas for this thing and I refuse to let these adventure concept go to waste.
Up, Up and Away,
